130. Cheat Death

Whether your van skids over the edge of a snowy mountain cliff (happened to me), you are briefly kidnapped whilst hitchhiking (happened to my mom)  or you’re chased by a grizzly bear across a meadow while tree planting (happened to my old roommate),  tales of cheating death are always the most compelling and therefore, the most cool.

These events shape us not only because they  give us awesome stories to drop at parties, but also because they provide us with a sort of  transcendent religious experience coupled with a super badass adrenaline rush.

There is nothing more exhilarating then staring death square in the face and saying, “No thanks, not today!”
